Bonnie & Clyde: The Musical is the electrifying, true story of Bonnie Parker and Clyde Barrow, set to a powerful musical score of ballads and jazz and blues numbers by the legendary Frank Wildhorn (Jekyll & Hyde, Civil War, Dracula). The musical follows the arc of youthful fantasies gone terribly wrong. Bonnie (Brittany Ambler) is a starstruck 20-year-old waitress dreaming of fame as an actress, poet and singer. Clyde (Robert Koutras) romanticizes Billy the Kid and Al Capone. The pair’s bold and reckless behavior turns their thrilling adventure into a downward spiral as they achieve the fame they seek, albeit ill-begotten. Forced to stay on the run, the infamous duo’s fame grows, and their inevitable end draws near.

Million Dollar Quartet
February 8-18, 2024
In December 1956, at the legendary Sun Records in Memphis, an extraordinary twist of fate brought Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, Carl Perkins, and Elvis Presley together for one of the greatest jam sessions ever at the studio where they all launched their careers. The Tony Award-nominated musical Million Dollar Quartet brings the night to life with performances by world-class actors and musicians. The tale of broken promises, secrets, betrayals, and celebrations includes smash hits such as “Blue Suede Shoes,” “Fever,” “Walk the Line,” “Great Balls of Fire,” “Folsom Prison Blues,” “Hound Dog,” and much more. The jam session is the only performance of the quartet’s, called “a cultural flashpoint that caught rock ‘n roll at the moment of creation.” Written by Colin Escott and Floyd Mutrux.

The story is based on a novel by Patrick Dennis (Auntie Mame). The show debuted on Broadway in 1962 starring Sid Caesar with choreography by Bob Fosse.

Carrie: The Musical
April 25-May 5, 2024
Stephen King’s blockbuster 1974 debut novel, “Carrie,” and the classic 1976 film are the basis for Carrie: The Musical. The story portrays the horrifying consequences when highschooler Carrie White is bullied by the popular crowd and is virtually invisible to everyone else. What no one knows is that she has special powers, and if pushed too far, is not afraid to use them. The 1988 musical adaptation was revived off-Broadway in 2012, receiving multiple award nominations and the Best Off-Broadway Musical award from the Off-Broadway Alliance. Carrie: The Musical features a book by Lawrence D. Cohen (screenwriter of the film), music by Academy Award winner Michael Gore (Fame, Terms of Endearment), and lyrics by Academy Award winner Dean Pitchford (Fame, Footloose).
